Family Favorites – An Easy and Delicious Banana Muffin Recipe

Well, Fall has officially arrived!  Though, you would never know it around here.  The temperatures have been in the 80’s and will continue to be warm for the next week.  I have started decorating a little, which feels strange with the air conditioner on, but what can you do?

You can bake banana muffins…that’s what you can do!

Anyway, I thought I would share our easy banana muffin recipe with you!…

Easy Banana Muffin Recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 large eggs

4 ripe bananas

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup buttermilk

1 1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup walnuts or pecans (optional)

Instructions:

Cream together the 1/2 cup butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar.  Add 2 large eggs and mix.  Mash 4 ripe bananas and add 1 tsp vanilla.  Add that mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and beat.  Mix together 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/3 cup of buttermilk and add to batter.  Slowly add 1 1/4 cup of flour and stir in the nuts.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 minutes.  (23 is about ideal for my oven)

(Makes about 2 dozen)

You can also use this recipe to make banana bread:

Follow recipe above.

Fill a standard loaf pan and bake for 1 hour.

Sometimes I add a cream cheese frosting.  The muffins are nice and moist on their own but the frosting makes them more cupcake-like!

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz cream cheese (at room temperature)

1 cup of confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp vanilla extra

Beat all ingredients until fluffy

Note:  You can add more sugar to make it sweeter but this is the combination that seems to work for us.

Since these muffins have the consistency of banana bread, you will notice that they aren’t very fluffy.  Be prepared for them to be more heavy and dense than your typical muffin.

If this recipe looks familiar to you, I realized I posted it a few years back.  Of course, when I reread it, I noticed I typed “flower” instead of “flour”.  It’s nice to know that silly mistake was sitting on my blog for like, 3 years!  In the old post, I also had the cooking time listed as 10-12 minutes when it should have been 20-25.  I apologize to the thousands of people out there who actually used “flowers” or under-cooked their muffins.  Hopefully, no one got salmonella from the raw eggs…I have gone back and corrected those little typos and made sure I proofread this version.  Just looking out for you, my friends!

    I love banana muffins! That really does sound good for Fall. It has been hot here too but once October gets here it should cool off.

    These sound so yummy with the cream cheese frosting. I have been in a baking mood too. This post made me smile. I am forever finding typos on my blog as well. Here's to some cooler fall temperatures soon!

    Shelley, these are lovely and with cream cheese. So funny about the misspelling of flour. We all make mistakes. Have you tried the free recipes Generator for Blogger? Recipes Generator
